The Final Affair by David McDaniel

Well, here it is, the Holy Grail of Man from U.N.C.L.E. fandom.

David McDaniel wrote several of the Ace paperback U.N.C.L.E. novels. He was also a fan of the show, as you can tell by his characterizations, and several "guest appearances" of other fictional creations in his U.N.C.L.E. books, including a certain world's first consulting detective, if my memory serves.

Well, before his death, McDaniel wrote an MS called The Final Affair, which summed up his thoughts on the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement and its agents.

The MS was never published, and has been passed around, even copies sold on eBay, I've heard.

Well, several friends in the Man from U.N.C.L.E. Yahoo! group got together and decided to share The Final Affair with all interested cousins.

So, with thanks to Kathy E., Cindy Walker, Paula Smith, Greenwoman, and Bob Short. . .

Submitted for your approval is David McDaniel's "long lost" The Final Affair.

Let me know what you think!
We would like to also thank the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, without whose cooperation this blog post would not be possible.

More Fun Things I Never Ordered

I was too timid a lad (or maybe too smart) to be willing to fork over a whole five bucks or so for a real tank or a real Polaris Sub.

Besides, when I was three I'd used an ice pick to poke the family swimming pool full of holes, so I wouldn't have anywhere to float the submarine, anyway.
X-Ray Specs, now -- that would have been something!
